Applying Experiential Learning Theory to Paediatric Post-Graduate Epilepsy Training


Reem Abdullah Alyoubi
Abstract

Status epilepticus (SE) is a common medical emergency with a high morbidity rate, which can be lessened by an appropriate treatment plan. Since there is not enough structured teaching plan for the treatment of SE for post-graduate training; this research paper investigates the potential application of Kolb’s experiential learning theory (KELT) to pediatric post-graduate training for the treatment of epilepsy. The theory emphasizes the continuity of learning and the significance of experience in knowledge creation. As such, the plan has four phases: concrete experience, reflective observation, abstract concepts, and active experimentation. Each of these phases addresses a dimension of learning. All together offer a holistic view of SE treatment.
